Pre Khmer Agate Bead
~sold~ $150.USD

Very long gray agate/chalcedony cylinder bead, circa 2nd century AD excavated in Cambodia. This piece is very difficult to photograph to show it to its best advantage as it has a subtle “chiaroscuro” quality when viewed through light. There is chipping at both ends, it was bored both sides where the holes met in the middle. At 9.5cm/3.8in length it is extremely rare to find a bead like this unbroken.
